BURNABY — Oh, a victory would have been nice. It would, in fact, have had a staying power which could channel positive vibes through the long winter off-season ahead, through national signing day in early February, and then into both spring and fall camp.
A tornado of turnovers did in the Simon Fraser Clan on Saturday afternoon in Monmouth, Ore.
If there was an air of mystery to who the South Dakota School of Mines were as a football team, the Simon Fraser Clan found out the hard way against the Hardrockers on Saturday night in downtown Rapid City.
The re-boot of Simon Fraser football continued Saturday night in Glendora, Cal., and as their competition took a huge spike up in quality form a week ago, the Clan’s margin of defeat may have, on first glance, taken its faithful back to that dark and familiar place.
